What is the best age to desex my dog?

I have a borderemma, maremma cross border collie, female, she is quite big and boisterous! Not sure the best age to get her desexed. I keep getting mixed information from breeders. She has the chracreristics and size of the maremma breed and only has the border collie exact markings.

The recommended age to desex your dog is anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months. The earlier the better, with 6 weeks being as early as you should be doing it. That is only recommended, so if you're dog is older than 6 months, it won't be an issue to get her desexed.

I hope this helps,
